SatSquatch is a tool designed for weather professionals and enthusiasts looking to display imagery from the GOES weather satellites (GOES-16, GOES-17 coming soon) in a user-friendly and responsive interface.

The base version of SatSquatch allows access to all available base satellite layers (full list below) as well as custom derived products such as true color or visible/infrared composite layers. The application also allows users to loop through up to 50 images and toggle overlays for their location, state borders, country borders, major highways, SPC outlook, etc.

Upgrade to SatSquatch Pro (4.99/mo) to overlay vital meteorological information such as temperature, dewpoint, or derived quantities such as convective available potential energy (CAPE) from our custom mesoanalysis. Our mesoanalysis updates at a high frequency (every 15 minutes) and at a fine resolution (grid spacing of ~3km).

Minor issues

This app is fantastic. I’ve only had 2 minor issues that have been constant. First is if I’ve had the app already open and it resets in the background and I go back to it, it will give me a data error when trying to choose anything. Closing the app completely and reopening solves this. Also I’m still not able to have my pro subscription crossover to another device (both iOS.) aside from those 2 small things this so far is amazing.

The maps I’ve been waiting for

Awesome selection of satellite products and mesoanalysis tools. Instead of having several tabs open on my phone, I’ll be able to have everything in one easy to use app.

Great when it works

Running latest iOS and the app keeps having issues. The only way to fix it seems to be deleting it constantly and reinstalling. Support team says they are unable to fix. I inquired about refund and didn’t seem to get a reply unless I missed it. Again- great app when it works- but it hardly works for me.
